Marylyn is a linguistics major at Nanyang Technological University. She hopes to continue amassing more obscure yet useful knowledge in time to come. Besides sometimes fumbling with words, she enjoys theatre, strange and wonderful art of any sort, and has recently discovered spoken word poetry. She has been called, among a slew of other things, an ‘erotic poet’. Marylyn believes in not being an open book, and writes for your bewilderment.
From sound healing to Avant-Garde music, Pablo is an eclectic music maker and multi-instrumentalist to whom music is above all a spiritual practice and a flying carpet. Currently a student of Classical Indian music and Master in Composition by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and an indefatigable traveler and researcher, he has also worked extensively with Theatre, spiritual and contemporary concert music in different parts of the world. In his opinion Music is a sound simile of the universe itself in a human creative scale. Be it through simple listening or active making it connects us to the Self and testifies to our oneness-with-all nature. In this edition of the Art Salon Pablo will be presenting a version of his current project called `Planetary Soul` that brings together in an original way many of the influences he has gathered along his life journey.
